Give me Jesus...

This is one of my favorite songs from Fernando Ortega. May it be our prayer ... may it be MY prayer...for 2008

In the morning when I rise,
In the morning when I rise,
In the morning when I rise give me Jesus.
Give me Jesus, give me Jesus.
You can have all this world, But give me Jesus.
And when I am alone,
Oh, and when I am alone,
And when I am alone give me Jesus.
And when I come to die,
Oh, and when I come to die,
And when I come to die,
give me Jesus.
You can have all this world,
You can have all this world,
You can have all this world,
But give me Jesus.

  4. Fernando Ortega is one of our families favorite singers! When we camp in the summer our kids usually go to bed listening to him. When my husband and I come in to go to bed, most of the time we are going to sleep to this song! It holds such a special place in my heart! Thanks for posting it! Have you ever heard his CD "The shadow of your wings", it's fabulous!
